Complete digestive stool analysis

The Complete Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA) is a comprehensive test to identify not only imbalances but how well your digestive system functions.

It shows:

  • digestion efficiency (performance of acids and enzymes)
  • absorption
  • intestinal function
  • microbial flora
  • identifies pathogenic bacteria, parasites and yeasts including candida.

The CDSA is a non-invasive test that is done at home with kit and provides invaluable information for the patient and practitioner in terms of understanding the role of poor digestive function andsymptoms of illness in disease states. With this information your Naturopath will be able to provide you a treatment plan to get you back on track fast with targeted therapy.

This test is useful for those with symptoms of constipation, diarrhoea, flatulence, bloating, abdominal discomfort and bad breath are all indicative of poor gut function and is ideal for people with irritable bowel, Crohn’s, Celiac, bowel cancer and other digestive diseases.

There are different levels of CDSA test that range from $130-$650 (most commonly around $250).  Your Naturopath will be able to recommend the most appropriate test after your health assessment in your inital consultation.
